Percussionist Marilyn Mazur wrote a 12-part suite for the Brande International Music Workshop Orchestra (Bimwo), resulting in this 1997 CD. The music, which sometimes utilizes the voice of Aviaja Lumholt, is adventurous and unpredictable, ranging from quite serious to funky. The suite is continuous (without any pauses between its 12 sections) and, although quite unpredictable, it is ultimately logical. This stimulating and unusual set is well-worth several listens.
